Killing Dead Links With Fire

I've been going through and replacing broken long long long-dead links with working links.

Also, moving working links from link on artist name in first column, to link column (second column), per Tyler, to give more context to links.

Did A-L. Will do more later. (Please do not remove the unlinked "Website" in many of the LINK column cells. It's a work in progress)

Moving dead links to this page (talk page), below.

Merging Redundant Pages

Per Jacob Barton, Tyler Henthorn, Mike Battaglia (Bugs) and myself, OKed by Kite, we merged Bands page and Artists Page onto this page, the Talk:MicrotonalListeningList page. Also removed link to Bands page and Artists Page on left sidebar.

Also made LISTEN! link all caps, added exclamation point, and put at top of "Practice" section on left sidebar.

There is also talk of making a streaming free radio station of xen bands. SyntheticThought (talk) 03:33, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

UPDATE: This is now completed. On to fixing the broken links for me... SyntheticThought (talk) 03:34, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Should We Keep People on the List if they have no listen links?

Below, in the next section, I have people removed pending seeing if anyone can come up with a listen link.

But what about people who say they have no listen links?

I've emailed a bunch of artists asking for current bio and link info. David Cubberly wrote back:

I haven't had music info on my website for a while now. Back when I had more of a web presence it wasn't as easy to have music available for preview or purchase. For now, I do have some of my records listed on Discogs here:

I replied: Thank you. I updated your listing here: I'd recommend you add a song or two somewhere people can listen free. SoundCloud, BandCamp, or YouTube. For the good of microtonal music (send me a link if you do), and because we may end up purging people from the Listen page if they don't have a way to listen without buying a record. You can put stuff on YouTube with just a still image as the video. And you can upload WAVS or MP3s to SoundCloud free.

So my question is, do we remove people like that? It is the LISTEN page.

I understand leaving them if there is no recorded music if they're important historically to microtonal music. But in this day and age, for a living artist, it's not hard to put an MP3 online. I do it about every other day.

Artists Removed Until Better Links Provided

If anyone can provide listen links for these below, will return to list.

Mary Beth Ackerly music tuned for healing - I'm not positive this even is microtonal music. Can anyone confirm? Also, it's the first thing on the list, alphabetically, so need to confirm. I think she may have done some xen but this might not be it. Is confusing for first link on LISTEN! page. and

Jyrki Alakuijala electronic dance music in 8.19-EDO broken link. All I can find of him is software unrelated to music. Anyone have a music listen link? Was top on list after removing Mary Beth Ackerly With him moved here, top of list is Bill Alves, which is a good thing.

Alex Carpenter Dead link. Search for his name in quotes plus microtonal on Google yields only the Listen page. lol.

Janis Dambergs. Nothing online. No music connected to any people with this name.

Greg Fox indeterminate computer music in 11-EDO, 13-EDO and 19-EDO

Paul Greenhaw Just-tuned electric organs -- most pieces accompany video works.

Magnus Jonsson acoustic and electronic JI and meantone improvisations and compositions

Rick McGowan

Section for link dump of dead links, to not be wiping history

This is many, but not all, of them. (I fixed some before making this list.) These are long-dead links. Have been replaced with working listen links, when available, this is what was removed:

Greg Fox: This is not only not microtonal, it's not music, and has nothing to do with music. Might not even be the same Greg Fox.
